Privex's Looking Glass

Test your latency to our regions by pinging our geodiverse nameservers:

Providers asking everything from your birth date to your Tax ID? We don’t.

We are Privex founded in 2017 in the country of Belize.
Our mission: Ensure the privacy and freedom of speech of our customers.

At Privex, we are happy to serve our customers, therefore, we offer excellent customer support, our customers can reach to us

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] Under New Management - PayPal, SEPA, MoneyGram, WU &more on: December 28, 2014, 11:40:40 PM

2 days after Litecoinlocal shut down (Read on Reddit),  we relaunched it under NEW MANAGEMENT. The previous owner wouldn't give us the old domain, so we're now available at (instead of .org)

Trade with users in your area with Cash or Cash Deposit.

Trade online with SEPA, SWIFT, Faster Payments, PayPal, Skrill, or many other payment methods to buy or sell Litecoins!

External Discussion
Litecointalk Post
Feature and change requests (Reddit)

Update: As part of our work to make the new site much more transparent, we've made all account addresses, balances, and cold storage addresses public. We've signed each address with "Owned by" to make it clear that we are in control of your funds, and that they are safe. This way you know we're not running a fractional reserve (unlike MtGox). Visit the audit page HERE

What does this mean for old users? (

  • Your balance has been reset to 0. It's safe to deposit, but your previous balances are gone. You need to contact Dennis Haggblom (AKA Litecoinlocal on Reddit) regarding your old balance. We CANNOT help you with this.
  • Any open or disputed trades from the OLD SITE have been closed. We don't have access to the old funds to handle these, and we cannot refund any LTC related to these (please contact Dennis Haggblom (the previous owner) as previously stated)
  • Litecoinlocal is now run by myself (Someguy123), and the last developer from Litecoinlocal, Kale (
  • The exchange section is gone. It wasn't profitable, and nobody was using it. Instead we're going to prioritize local trading, and listen to feature enhancements from our users rather than work on an unrelated exchange
  • Full details on the announcement post here:
  • Please. Do NOT message us about your lost balances. We cannot help you. Direct all balance and cancelled trade queries to Dennis Haggblom (previous owner with your funds)

How do I get my litecoins back from the old site? (

You'll need to contact the OLD MANAGEMENT who was the only person with access to your coins.

3  Economy / Services / Someguy's Security Service (For Bitcoin Web Services) on: September 20, 2014, 01:15:17 PM
Someguy's Security Service

Are you running a public Bitcoin service? You're a target for millions of hackers.

Do you have cold storage set up properly? Are your servers locked down? Is that developer you just hired really trustworthy?

I'm an expert in security with at least 8 years of security experience, and 5 years of Bitcoin and other CryptoCurrency experience, having worked for private Bitcoin companies building or security enhancing existing web applications in PHP, Ruby, NodeJS and other languages/frameworks.

Some of your options depending on the level of security you're looking for can be:

Internal Security Audit

An internal security audit is the most thorough type of testing (and the most expensive). It involves giving me access to your code base, your servers, and/or other architecture for me to review from within your network.

Testing your code internally will include checking for CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery), XSS (Cross-Site Scripting), SQLI (SQL Injection), Race Conditions, and various other types of exploits that could be present. After testing, I write up a report detailing the different sections of the code that are vulnerable, or may be vulnerable, and you can pass this onto your development team, or I can refer you to one of my verified developers who will correct the issues for a further charge.

Testing your server internally will include file/folder permission checks, checking for vulnerable services, hardening configurations for public facing services, and informing you about the risks of your server architecture (such as VPS provider security, improperly firewalled services). If you have a server administration team, I can also question them about their practices and inform them and yourself of security risks caused by them.

External Security Audit

An external security audit is less thorough than the internal one, but cheaper, and still very important. The external security audit involves me attempting to "hack" your web application and server using various techniques and tools. Note: This will all be done with your permission, and will require you to verify that you own the web application and/or server to prevent legal problems.

Testing your web application externally will involve scanning for vulnerable services, checking for CSRF/XSS/SQLI and Race Conditions, although this will be much less thorough than the internal audit, meaning that I may not be able to reveal all possible exploits due to complexity in triggering them which would be revealed by your code.

Payment Architecture Consulting

This is intended for websites which handle a "hot wallet", where Bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies are stored on a server. This does NOT apply to those using BitPay or Coinbase to deal with their payments.

Payment Architecture Consulting involves your developers explaining how user balances are handled, where and how coins are stored for the service, and how any cold wallets are handled. Afterwards, I will question them about any information I need to understand your set-up, and inform them of any changes required to keep user balances safe. The corrections to your architecture can be done by your existing developers (I would provide a thorough report detailing what they need to change), or I can bring in my own verified developers to do the work required for a price (depending on my availability, I might be able to do the corrections myself for a price too)

All services are on a quote basis. Contact me by PM on here, or email info |at| someguy123 dot com

4  Other / Meta / "As your member rank increases, you can use more types of styling..." on: March 13, 2014, 06:41:39 PM
I don't see any forum post here which tells me what styling I can use at which ranks. Right now I can't seem to use any colour in my signature...
5  Economy / Auctions / [WTS] EasyBitcoins - Site List source code on: August 02, 2013, 04:22:55 AM
A while ago I built the site to see how well it could bring in money, it is made in PHP+MySQL, but it uses PDO as an abstraction layer, so changing to SQLite, PostgreSQL, or other databases with similar syntax is a simple change of the database config file.

  • A basic admin panel for managing the sites
  • Any sites entered will have their link automatically shortened using CoinURL
  • Basic hit tracking using a redirection page, hits are shown in the admin panel
  • The code uses PDO, meaning you can modify it to use any database without needing to re-code it


What do you get?
  • Full, clean source code to the website, with no obfuscation
  • The current database of the website so you can get started quickly
  • Basic tech support if you're having issues setting up the site, although I can choose on a per-case basis

What you don't get
  • You do NOT get hosting of any kind included
  • You do NOT get the domain (although it will be redirected to your own domain for at least 1 week to help move over old users)
  • You do NOT get my CoinURL account, you will be required to make your own for the site to work.
  • You do NOT get any updates, fixes, or improvements to the source code once purchased.

Auction Details
The auction will start at $50 and will go for 5 days, ending 2013-08-07 00:00:00 British Summer Time (UTC+1)
Depending on my schedule, it may take me up to 24 hours or more for me to finalize the auction, to obtain payment from the winner, and to then deliver the source code in the request method.
The minimum increment is $1 from the previous bid.

These prices are to be paid in Bitcoin or Litecoin equivalent to the rate shown at BTC-e
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / We need votes to get Sublime Text to accept Bitcoin on: July 10, 2013, 01:28:53 AM
I know that a large part of the Bitcoin community are developers of some sort, and for those who program, Sublime Text is a popular choice for a highly extensible text editor, with many plugins.

One problem with Sublime Text, is that the only payment option when purchasing it, is PayPal  Cry

I've written a large, descriptive post on their suggestion system explaining why they should accept Bitcoin. It would be great if people could up-vote and comment on the suggestion so that it can be easily seen by the company.

I've also made a reddit post on /r/Bitcoin if anyone wants to up-vote that, or comment on it:

It shouldn't be too hard for us to get the post onto the front page, these are the current highest rated suggestions:

To get anywhere on the front page of suggestions/ideas at the current time, is around ~400 votes, or to the top of the front page, we need  ~1800 votes.

It also helps if you retweet my post on twitter:

EDIT: Wow. Just a day later and I find that we've already hit 317 votes, we're pretty close to getting onto the front page of suggestions! Thanks for all the support guys
Edit: and as I say that, we come to a standstill... 2 days later stuck at around 350 votes, and the reddit has barely budged from 180 upvotes.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANN] Litecoin Forum back online on: June 03, 2013, 07:44:17 PM
Apologies for the downtime, BitVPS was under attack (many other people have been having issues).

After talking with BitVPS, the forum is now back online without issues.

EDIT: Certain DNS servers haven't been updated yet. You might not be able to access the forum for a few hours, or possibly over a day depending on your DNS servers.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Let's get to accept Bitcoin on: June 01, 2013, 01:19:35 AM is a site dedicated to offering DRM free games, legally from well-known mainstream publishers such as Activision, or Ubisoft; as well as indie developers such as CD Projekt (the guys who made The Witcher game series)
I've created a detailed post on their site feature requests, asking for them to accept Bitcoin, as well as explaining payment services like BitPay and Coinbase:

If people sign up, and upvote this, we might just see an option for Bitcoin available at GOG.

To help gain support for this, you can place a link to this thread in your signature:

9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin Forum Server Upgraded on: April 22, 2013, 12:26:55 AM
I apologize for the unplanned maintenance, but we're being upgraded so that we can handle a bit more.

We'll be back up anywhere from a few minutes, to a few hours.

This is not a DDoS or hack, we're simply upgrading the server.
10  Economy / Auctions / BuyBIT - The Namecoin Registrar website on: April 21, 2013, 12:21:07 AM
BuyBIT was originally designed to ease the process of registering a domain using Namecoin. It allows for the a to register a domain using either Namecoins or Bitcoins, and then is able to specify either two nameservers, or an IP address for an A record.
Due to lack of use, and general abandonment by myself, I have decided to sell the website on auction, with a starting price of $100 paid in either Bitcoins or Litecoins of equal value (Just to be safe when the price changes)
Anyone who's highly interested in the service can purchase it with a "Buy it NOW" price of $350 (also paid in Bitcoins/Litecoins).
Minimum Increment is $1

I've answered a few possible questions below, so that the buyer can be more informed:

Q: Will I get the domain with it?
A: The service was originally founded with and I'm happy to part with that domain if the buyer wants it. (although it'd be more professional to buy your own .com/.net)

Q: Do I get the hosting of the site?
A: No. You'll have to find your own hosting, as it's currently hosted on one of my personal VPS's which runs several services.

Q: What about the current users of BuyBIT?
A: If needed, I'll dump the current database for the buyer, and the new buyer can decide what'll happen.

Q: What licence will the code be given under?
A: The code will be given without licensing. It's perfectly allowed for the buyer to open source the code and throw it under the GPL, or instead through it under a non-disclosure licence, locked to their company etc.

Q: What are the requirements for the website code?
A: The website is written in PHP with pretty much all dependencies packaged with the code, the only real dependencies are a Namecoin and Bitcoin original daemon running on the server.

Q: What about the wallets?
A: The wallets used by the server will also be optionally given to the buyer, (although I've drained both wallets of funding) so that users will continue to have their balances, and the domains are also linked to the wallet.

Q: Will any support be given, e.g. feature requests, installation?
A: All support is in my discretion. You'll generally just be given the code+wallets+database, and left to do whatever. I may help in some cases, to configure the site to get it running again on your own server.

Q: When will the auction end?
A: The auction will end on 2013-04-28 at 00:00 UTC-0 OR when somebody purchases it for the "Buy it NOW" price.

tl;dr you get the domain, database, wallet, and code. licence however you feel like. it's PHP, no dependencies. no support other than optional configuration help. ends next week.

Any other questions can be asked in the thread, or via PM.

13  Economy / Auctions / Selling my 2 letter domain on: April 09, 2013, 10:36:47 AM
I own the short domain SV.GD, and as I'm using it very little, I've decided I'd sell it. The domain will be transferred from Kalyhost to the winner within a week of the auction finishing (possibly earlier).
I'm using a dollar price similar to other auctions on here, because of the unpredictable price.

The domain starts the auction at just $60, or a "Buy Now" of $400, and will end on the 12th of April 2013, 2013-04-12 at 00:00 UTC
Minimum increments of $1.

The dollar price must be paid in equal value of LTC or BTC.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin Network Hashrate over the past 3 months ( People are leaving Bitcoin! ) on: December 01, 2012, 05:45:04 PM
Many of us at the litecoin community have been concerned about the huge increase in network hashrate, with a rising difficulty retarget... but how big is this hashrate boost?

This graph tells us, pretty damn big.
The network hashrate for litecoin has nearly doubled in just a few days after the block halving on Bitcoin!

If anyone is wondering where this graph came from, I made the graph myself using excel, with data from a script to extract information from the Litecoin block explorer (which I run)
18  Other / Off-topic / Humble Bundle on: September 27, 2012, 03:35:29 PM
I just went on to humblebundle to collect my bonus games for humblebundle 6 and saw this:

A nice large donation from the guy who runs MtGox and Kalyhost, MagicalTux.

The question is, when and will humblebundle at least give bitcoin a chance?
Last I heard from them during one of the last bundles, they said they were too busy at the time to consider it.
Has anyone got any updated news about this?
19  Economy / Auctions / BuyBit (Domain/source code) on: July 17, 2012, 12:21:23 AM
I've been neglecting the service for a while and haven't really had time to make it a more usable site, so I'm auctioning off the site, starting at BTC1.5
The purchase will include the domain (, the SQL dump, the namecoin and bitcoin wallet.dat, as well as the source code for the site.

Bidding ends on the 21st of July 00:00:00 and will go to the highest bidder.
20  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANNOUNCE] BitcoinTERROR - Get paid for playing an FPS on: June 23, 2012, 08:55:43 PM

Sign up today! - Play and earn BTCitcoins!

BitcoinTERROR is a server for a somewhat well known First Person Shooter called UrbanTerror, but there's a twist, for every kill you get a certain amount of bitcoins depending on which server you're on, and if you die, you lose bitcoins to the other player.

The payouts

RED - Your loss if you die
GREEN - Your win if you kill someone

  • - 0.02 BTC 0.02 BTC
  • - 0.0095 BTC - 0.01 BTC
  • - 0.095 BTC - 0.1 BTC

What about cheaters/hackers?
Server 1 and 3 only has a knife and grenades, meaning aimbots wouldn't be too useful, we may take action against cheaters on server 2 if we recieve a lot of complaints, but otherwise, using cheating mods is perfectly fine unless we change the rules later on.

Server information
The server is located in Germany, although if the game becomes more popular, more locations will be available.

We have an IRC channel over on Freenode  - - #bitcointerror - Feel free to join and talk there.

Altcoin support
Altcoins are soon to be supported depending on the popularity of the game, I myself am planning on hosting the Litecoin server if the game reaches a large audience, but otherwise we're sticking to Bitcoin.
